MOTOR YACHT ELLEN
Submitted by Dennis hubble
She was probably built in the 1940-50's, built to the Bassett-Lowke plans.
I acquired her in the early 90's. she was then powered by a Taycol electric motor, driving a gear box for 2 prop shafts.
The radio system was a valve receiver and transmitter. Nowadays she is powered by two 12 volt 800 tornado electric motors.
In her early days she was probably used in straight running competitions, as she is so long and slender.
She is due for a complete strip down and refurbishment shortly. Length 51" beam 11"
